I’m trying to force the sewjo by working on a few things. I started on one of my Polaroid block quilts. That’s right. Quilts. Plural. I had grand ideas of a big Polaroid block quilt for my kidlets to share. They had other ideas. They’d like one each. Purple for Lulu (2.5) and red for Jaybird (5). Right. Two quilts. Before Christmas. Sure kids. That’s how much I love you.
So Lulu’s blocks have been sashed with purple and then cut back to 6” blocks, slightly wonkified. I want the blocks to have a bit of movement to them so I blatantly copied Jane’s fabulous idea. Have you seen her amazing rainbow Polaroid quilt? I’ve blatantly stolen it to post here (just kidding, I asked her first!).
So now I need to get busy and sew my blocks together. Then start on the red version. Along with all the other things I have planned.
Like this quilt I drew up in EQ7. One of these versions is going to be for my fantastic dad for Christmas. Just need to decide which colour scheme I like best (because it’s all about me).
The diamonds are Pear Tree fabrics that I have already cut into 8” squares. That’s one thing I love about EQ7 – I can use swatches of the actual fabrics I’m planning to use to see how it looks.
Then there’s the Storybook Lane fabric house panel to make, the wallhanging and boomerang pillow cover for my Mum, something for my sister and… I am seriously running out of time.
Talking about running out of time (how did you like that segueway?!) it’s nearly time for the linky party for Sew Seasonal! Ooh yes – can’t wait!
Come back here on November 30th and link up what you’ve been making with the Sew Seasonal patterns. You still have a day or two to make something if you can be all Speedy Gonzales at the sewing machine.
Can’t wait to see what you’ve been making! Plus, there are prizes on offer! You can check out the full list of prizes, sponsors and fun here. So my friends, get sewing seasonally and come back in a few days for a chance to win something fab!
As for me… I’m off to tackle my giant “Sew Much To Do” List. Wish me luck. I need it.
Linking up with WiP Wednesday. Keeping me accountable.
